WHEN IS THE MOST IDEAL LIGHTING FOR OUTDOOR PORTRAIT SESSIONS?
I recommend morning sessions begin about a half hour after sunrise and evening sessions about two hours prior to sunset.
WHEN SHOULD I SCHEDULE MY PORTRAIT SESSION?
Spring and Fall date fill very quickly. The earlier you inquire, the more likely you will be able to reserve your desired date and time.
WHEN SHOULD I INQUIRE FOR MY WEDDING DATE?
I reserve wedding dates up to a year in advance. It never hurts to inquire early.
WHAT EQUIPMENT DO YOU USE? DO YOU BRING BACKUPS?
I shoot with Canon equipment – Canon 5d Mark III camera bodies and an array of lenses and reception lighting. I bring backup equipment to every wedding.
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN SHOOTING WEDDINGS PROFESSIONALLY?
I photographed my first wedding in March of 2010.
WHAT IS REQUIRED TO BOOK MY WEDDING DATE?
Once we decide on a collection that best fits your needs, I will send you a booking proposal to read and review. Signing the agreement and a 40% deposit is required to officially book the date.
DO WE RECEIVE THE HIGH-RESOLUTION FILES OF THE IMAGES AND ARE WE ABLE TO PRINT THEM?
Yes! You will receive the high-resolution files and be able to reproduce them at a lab of your choice. For the best quality, we do recommend ordering prints through the online gallery we send your photos in, or another high-quality lab that uses calibrated monitors. If you are interested in printing an image larger than 11×14, I recommend emailing me and ordering directly through me. I can have it correctly mounted and manage the print production to make sure it is perfect to grace the walls of your home!
HOW LONG BEFORE WE RECEIVE THE IMAGES AFTER THE WEDDING DAY?
The highest care is taken to process your images and get them ready for print. The turnaround time is 6 to 8 weeks depending on the season.
DO YOU DELIVER RAW, UNEDITED IMAGES?
I do not deliver raw images. After enhancing each image I deliver them in JPEG format that is easily read by standard computer software.
WHEN DO ENGAGEMENTS/BRIDALS TAKE PLACE?
Portrait sessions (Engagement & Bridals) take place Monday through Thursday with some Friday availability. Weekend dates may be requested 5 to 6 weeks in advance, and will include a weekend fee of $150.
WHAT IS THE TURNAROUND FOR PORTRAIT SESSION IMAGES?
Approximately 3 to 4 weeks from the portrait session date.
